How many ways can we destroy our water supplies – rivers and sea ?
With the increasing numbers of people, increasingly volatile weather, and dependence on so many chemical inputs in our life, we have chosen to allow massive amounts of pollution into our water.
Looking at changing from a linear economy where the focus is on greed, on more more more, that creates more waste, dependent on fossil fuels and then more waste.. we can take big steps to change this
It will not be simple .. we are coming into an era of massive need for innovation, enginneering, opportunities to do things differently.
How do we address each of these threats
- Fertilisers, pesticides and other land use chemicals
- Soil erosion and run off
- Raw sewage effluent
- Industrial plant effluent
- Nuclear plant effluent.
